The rocket wrecks, found in Kazakhstan is located outside the flight zone of Russian rockets launched from Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, RIA Novosti reports citing the press-service of RosKosmos, the Russian federal space agency.
According to the press-secretary of the agency Sergey Gorbunov, none of the routes of Russian carrier rockets cross Kazaly Region of Kyzylorda Oblast in southern Kazakhstan, and there are no impart zones for Russian rockets in the area.
Responding to today's suggestion that the discovered fragments belonged to a Russian spacecraft, supposedly, the Dnepr rocket that crashed shortly after launch in 2006, he pointed out, that Russian rockets don't fly over that region.
Kazakhstan experts have already checked the site and detected no radiation background. Results of the air, water and soil probes will be ready in three days. The wrecks will be taken to a regional research center for the further investigation.
The fragments found three kilometers from Kokzhabaky village in Kyzylorda oblast in southern Kazakhstan are most likely a wreck of a spacecraft, supposedly a Russian one, since the marking on the fragments are made in the Russian language.
The site has been cordoned off and a commission of representatives of the oblast's authorities, sanitary and epidemiological service and ecologists are working there together with a team of Emergency Situations Department.
